About Felicia: 

Felicia Yap’s debut thriller YESTERDAY was published by Headline UK, Little Brown USA and around the world in multiple languages. Her novel is about a murder that takes place in a world where most people can only
remember yesterday.

Felicia has been a radioactive-cell biologist, a war historian, a university lecturer, a technology journalist, a theatre critic, a flea-market trader and a catwalk model. Felicia has extensive teaching experience, having previously supervised, mentored and provided pastoral care for students at the University of Cambridge and the London School of Economics.


In 2017, she set up the Yesterday Scholarship for a talented writer from an under-privileged background at Curtis Brown Creative and was selected by The Observer as a Rising Star for Fiction.



A brilliant high-concept debut thriller - just how do you solve a murder when you only remember yesterday?

Today, the police are at your door.

They say that the body of your husband's mistress has been found in the River Cam. They think your husband killed her two days ago.

You can't recall what he did that day, because you only remember yesterday.

You rely on your diary to tell you where you've been, who you love and what you've done.

So, can you trust the police?
Can you trust your husband?
Can you trust yourself?
